Candle Envy

Somehow my candle stash is almost out. 
I'm almost out of tea-lights, down to one small candles and out of large candles - how has this happened?!

It's my birthday at the end of the month and so I've made a list of candles that I would like to open up on the day.


First up is the IW Natural Candle Company - Lavender & Bergamot medium candle at £10.50.
Two of my favourite scents blended together to create a balancing, relaxing and uplifting candle - perfect for these gloomy, rainy evenings. My one remaining candle, and actually my tea lights, are from IW Natural!

Heartwood Candle Company has been on my radar for a while but I have yet to try anything from them. The Rosemary, Lemon & Frankincense candle, £18, comes it it's own little poem created by Laura & Dominique, the founders of this fantastic company. 

The 'Indigo' candle, £22, from Blossom & Jasmine captured my attention straight away. Lemon & Basil come together to boost energy levels, revitalise and uplift your mood. I love the black glass, this just looks so sleek.


Ahhh, M&J London. Just look at that logo! Onto the candle though, I've picked English Summer £23, from the range and why? Cucumber, mint, strawberry & champagne, that's why! Perfect for summer evenings and the promise of garden parties.

I found this Uplifting candle,£25, from Blend Collective whilst browsing LoveLula. Apparently it Calms, Indulges & Delights! With Sandlewood, Frankincense, Ceaderwood, and Neroli, it sounds like heaven to me.

Last but certainly not least, Neom Restore candle, £39.50.  Restore is a beautiful blend of Jasmine, Ginger & Sandlewood essential oils to improve mental focus and create a feeling of peace.

There we have it, my candle Birthday wishlist. Hopefully I'll be opening some of these at the end of the month!

Have you tried any of these before? Which candles do you use?

  3. I feel your pain! I currently have seven nearly empty candles hanging around my room. I haven't heard of any of these brands, but I would looooove to have a Diptyque candle in the future. Also, I would love another Voluspa candle. My favorite is their Makassar Peach and Ebony.
